AGREEMENT FOR AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND


27 AUGUST 2019—BBC Studios Australia & New Zealand (BBC Studios) and Universal Pictures
Australasia (Universal) have signed a multi-year distribution agreement for Australia and New
Zealand across physical formats. In Australia, BBC Studios’ broad range of content will be
distributed by Universal Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Australia Pty Ltd and, in New
Zealand, by Universal Pictures NZ, and includes all sales, marketing and distribution. The news
was announced today by Jon Penn, Managing Director of BBC Studios Australia & New Zealand,
and Jim Batchelor, Managing Director, Universal Sony Pictures.


Jon Penn said: “We were impressed by Universal Pictures’ experience and creative flair in
managing diverse, category leading portfolios. Their expertise will bring a fresh energy and focus
to the delivery of physical formats through retailers to our customers.”


“We are proud to be partnering with BBC Studios to distribute their premium quality and
award-winning content from many of the planet’s best program makers. Some of our first
releases will be Bluey, the hit Australian animated television series for pre-school children, the
stunning series The Planets and the wildly imaginative drama, Good Omens and we look forward
to working with our Retail partners to launch these exciting new properties in Australia, as well as
the BBC’s extensive library of content.” said Batchelor, Universal Sony Pictures.


“The BBC has consistently delivered world-class content across every genre and we are delighted
to become BBC Studios’ Home Entertainment Distributor in Australia and New Zealand,” said
